This is why you should do a welfare check on your elderly family members. It was revealed by a ex-employee of AOL that their "dirty little secret" is that 75% of the people that are subscribers are people that have broadband and don't even realize that they no longer need AOL.

So please, stop by grammy's house next weekend and cancel her AOL account. You're doing the world a favor. Thanks.

AOL = Fail. Time Warner\AOL Failed buying the Huffington Post for $315 will equal fail. You would think they would have learnt from their first big failure. Hopefully this failure will end up putting this company out of business for good. hey AOL i got some ocean front property in Arizona you can buy too.

dedicated champion of innovative journalistic engagement,
So a communist blogger that does nothing but spout nonsense is a "journalist" but the entire fox news network is a bunch of hacks? What planet is this guy living on?

Not sure what rock you've been living under....but TW/AOL didn't fail here...AOL failed. TimeWarner and AOL parted company some time ago... AOL actually failed by merging with Time Warner... AOL stock and profits immediately started to plummet as soon as the TimeWarner merger was signed. The decision was made by TimeWarner to immediately discontinue the most popular "service and content" that AOL provided it's users and decided to start focusing on "premium features" like a per-month subscription based version of Kaspersky Antivirus...which then moved to McAfee AntiVirus.... Charging $10-$20/month for a product that was only $40-$50 on the store shelves severely hurt AOL.

Whats this communist shit? She's Greek.

Wait-A-Aminute, the owners of FOX News (Fair and Balance my ass.. and everyone knows it) aren't American. Top two owners are an Australian who created the trash-mags like World Weekly-something (BAT BOY, 1000lb man eats self, etc) and a Saudi Arabian. They ain't American... and they have the Muslim connection that nobody else has.

"Arianna is a singularly passionate and dedicated champion of innovative journalistic engagement, and a master of the art of using new media to illuminate, entertain and enhance the national conversation,"
I read that and spit coffee all over my LCD.

The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other peoples money to spend.

You do realize that the US is the only country in the western world that considers socialist programs to be bad.
